10 Places Where It Doesn’t Pay To Be a Student

A new study by StuRents has shown that students in the North and Midlands are getting a raw deal on their accommodation.

The research shows that students in many cities are forking out more than people who don’t study – for the same housing. It found that undergrads in the Midlands and the North can end up paying up to 36% more.

Loughborough topped the list, with students paying 36% more than non-students; an average of £80.21 per week compared to £58.94 per week for the average local. 

Although rent prices in London are considerably more expensive for students – an average of £202pw – that compares to £299.40 for those not at university.
